Visible Panel Lost When Monitor Failed

My third monitor recently failed. Now when I select the Paint Bucket tool, the Materials Panel no longer appears.

While I await capacitors to repair the monitor power supply, how can I force the Materials Panel to display on one of the remaining two monitors?

There are a couple of ways.
Go to windows/Preferences/Workspace and hit the reset workspace button.
Or activate the paintbucket so the focus is on it, then hit alt and space together, then m then tap any arrow key and finally move the mouse around without clicking until the material panel comes into view.
Can you fill in your profile info too so we know what you are working with as answers differ depending on version and os etc.
